Will this make me a better Guitar Hero player?
 
2006-11-13 12:54:33 AM  
There's more videos and stuff here.
 
2006-11-13 01:33:24 AM  
Man, I hope there are air-guitar groupies. I am gonna get SO laid.
 
2006-11-13 01:33:54 AM  
As long as people will still buy my air guitars off Ebay.

No Stairway?

It should come with an "awesome" button that makes it sound like you're good. It would be a pretty useful function considering it's designed for people who don't know how to play.
 
2006-11-13 01:41:09 AM  
Speaking of guitars and stuff, anyone happen to have a link to that one poster/painting/whatever of a bunch of characters from Star wars in a band, performing at a rock concert or something?

/Help me fark, youre my only hope

Alright! Now I can look like a dork with sound.

I was enthusiastic before reading the article, then snarky afterward, watched the Jedi's videos, and have settled on baffled.

Wow. I just looked at that link, and I just have to say this: If anybody out there was considering making an awesome painting of heavy metal star wars, don't. It's been done better than you are going to do it.
 
2006-11-13 02:43:37 AM  
what the hell is a boffin? the offspring of a aussie and something that goes *baaa*?

Guitarists need to realize what whores they are.

Sorry to pop your bubbles, whores, but try learning a real instrument.
 
2006-11-13 03:00:30 AM  
Look up some Star Wars Galaxies movies sometime. Especially the Cantina Crawls.

An air guitar that plays music already exists. It's called a theremin.
 
2006-11-13 03:25:39 AM  
Where can I get a print of that goddamn painting? Any idea of the original artist? The motivational poster is great but it's too low res.
 
2006-11-13 05:55:10 AM  
So is this gonna be the theremin for the new century?
 
2006-11-13 06:13:30 AM  
Or, you know, the consumer could stop being such a vagina and buy a real guitar.
 
2006-11-13 06:27:09 AM  
Anybody notice CP3O and R2D2 playing synths in the background? They look a bit like the Pet Shop Boys.

NEEDS TO BE *EMPHASIZED*.

Instead of being a vagina, buy a guitar and get more vagina...

/Yes, it does actually work.

If I'd have known about this, I wouldn't have bought a new bass yesterday.

GADAMMIT!

I guess I can stop working on mine now.

No, seriously. We were using a sort of sleeve instead of an entire shirt. Piss, piss, piss. Dammit.

Boffins are those funny little black and white birds with the squished up beak, and big feet.

I mean, nerds.
 
2006-11-13 10:59:58 AM  
I would love to see this thing set up to work as an alternate Guitar Hero controller.
 
2006-11-13 11:21:47 AM  
Speaking of LZ, I watched their live DVD (not SRTS) last night. The Jan/70 show is a-a-awesome.

Pshirt?
 
2006-11-13 12:54:02 PM  
Okay, just to be clear, no one who came here to make a Bothans joke won this thread. We all came here to make the same stupid joke.

/I was just far too late.
//Many Boffins died to bring you this post.
